He was under the influent nt liquor when brought into the court room and Judge Saufiey imposed a fine of $30 and twenty-four hours in jail. The judge will tolerate no fool ishness. Shooting. Friday night John Kersey shot an other negro named Henry Beazley at the former's home in Duncantown. Kersey was drunk and Beazley, to gether with, several other neighbors, were trying to get him into the house. Keskey, in his frenzy, went in the house and brought out an old army musdet. His friends, Beazley amcng the number, continued pleading with Kersey to go in the house and quit i aising a disturbance. Without a word of warning Kersey turned and fired at Beazley. Judging from the enormous hole torn in his breast, the gun must have been loaded with slugs. The charge entered Beazley's right breast; cutting of a finger of the right hand wh'ch was thrown up as the gun was leveled, and passed into his lunj a, Beazley is still alive but physicians ay there is no chance of recovery. Kersey fled, but gave himself up Saturday morning, when he was lodg ed in jail without bail. The men had always been friends, and Beazley was only doing what he- thought to be his duty in taking care of a drunken neighbor. Kersey is a peaceable n- gro, wljen sober, but a terror when rdrjnkingi Ther-s was not a harder working, or more honest darkey in town than Henry Beazley, and hewas never in any trouble. He went along in a peaceable, quiet way, ' and attend; ed.faithfully to any work given him Duncantown is on the opposite side of town from Battle Row and is an en tirety differeati settlement The coN or'ed ' people living there are hont st and uprignt, and a disturbance of any kiad seldom ocean there. DR. W. S. O'NEAL Dies at Ills Home In this City after a llrlef Illness. ATter about one week's illness and intense suffering, Dr. W. S. O'Neal died at his residence, on Lexington, street, Tuesday afternoon at 4:33 o'clk He had been subject to attacks of asthma all his life, and at times the suffering was great, but the last spell was dec'dedly the most severe he ever had. He was on the streets Friday evening attending to some important business and became overheated. He went home and suffered greatly thro' the night. Saturday he was ab'e to go to his office, some fifty yards from the house, but that night was taken much worse and the disease went into bronchial pneumonia. Those who attended him say they never witness ed such agony as he suffered. He grew rapidly worse and was delirious at times until the end came. Dr. O'Neal was born at Verona Boone county, Ky., sixty-two years ago. He graduated from the Ohio Medical College in bout 1SC1. In 18S5 he located in Lancaster where he has since practiced his profession success fully. He was an unusually attentive physician to his patiants and nev gave up a case while there was the least ray of hope of saving life. He was one of the most sympathetic and kind-hearted men it has ever been our pleasure to know and wc can soy, from personal experience, that he put his whole soul into his work when waiting on the sielc. fcevcral j-ears ago he remained with the writer of this article one entire night while we were down with t3'phoid fever, and al though unable to find a pulse on our bo.ly for eight hour, he never gave up, and worked with untiring energy until he succeodea in bringing us out We merely mention tl.is fact as a speclm -n of his zeal and plucl as a physician. He was a Baptist and a leading fig ure in the management of the local church. He gave close attention to his own affairs, and it can be said of Dr. O'Neal that he never dabbled in other people's business. He was Mason, but not affiliated with the lo cal lodge. ne leaves a widow and one daugh ter, Mrs. F. L. Hubble. He has four brothers and one sister. They are Mrs. Dr. D. M.

WnETHER we have war or not, the present situation will have a great tendency toward uniting the north and south and wiping out, to a great extent, the ill-feeling between the two sections. Let ns pray for the day when this feeling will be entirely wiped away. It is kept alive now mostly by stay-at-homes, the old sol diers seldom mentioning it. The best Western corn weigh mora bushel than does the Eastern pro duct. The dent corn has deep kernels. They are not so solid as the flint, and the shelled grain does not weigh so heavily, bnt it is less liable for that reason to injure stock.
